Welcome to the official travel guide for the capital of Greenland

Nuuk is the capital of Greenland, balancing commerce and culture with fresh air and stunning views. Nuuk's embrace of both the traditional and modern can be seen in the city's dynamic cultural life and way of life. The city bursts with local entrepreneurs, nature oriented foods and sustainable activities, that makes this city an ideal destination for eco tourists.

While Nuuk hosts a distinctly urban feel (despite its small size), nature is never far. The iconic mountains of Quassussuaq/Lille Malene and Ukusisaat/Store Malene can be tackled on a hike just outside of downtown. It's not long after departing Nuuk Harbour that the fjord transitions to a true wilderness of snow-capped mountains and barren islands.

    The national costume of Greenland has become an icon for the Greenlandic culture. It comes in regional versions - like this one that is usually seen in the West Coast. People wear it on special occasions like weddings.

    I know I've been going on and on about how pretty Nuuk is during this takeover but I can't help it - this place is even magical on a foggy day! 😍 I hope I could convince you to visit the town one day or bring back memories from your own visit 😊 If you're interested to see more pictures of Greenland and the Nordics, you can find me over @snowintromso. Thanks for following along - Qujanaq! - Vanessa

    I was incredibly fortunate with the weather on my visit to Nuuk and thus, got to experience heaps of gorgeous sunsets! I've yet to visit a place that is more gorgeous than Nuuk at sunset though - the sun setting behind the mountains across the fjord is a sight I'd love to be able to see more often 💜 - 📷 Vanessa of @snowintromso
